Deira City Centre Mall, the most popular shopping center on the Deira side of the creek, won't win any prizes for its design, but its prices are lower than other malls with the same stores. Shopping covers everything you might need, from groceries to Persian carpets. The range of shopping opportunities here attracts a cross-section of customers from all nationalities and walks of life. Mainstream outlets dominate, but the newer wing, Bin Hendi, has more cutting-edge boutiques
and a selection of eateries. Deira City Centre Mall also has an RTA office that issues temporary Dubai driver's licenses, which you'll need if you want to rent a car and don't have an international driver's license.
